A littoral bryozoan assemblage from the Korytnica Clays (Middle Miocene; Holy Cross

Norbert Vavra

Abstract


Bryozoa from the Middle Miocene (Badenian) deposits of the Korytnica Basin, Holy Cross Mountains (Central Poland) are reviewed. The new material having been collected on a coastal slope in an area with preserved littoral structures shows characteristic patterns for depth distribution, on the basis of which approximate bathymetric estimations are given. Indicated is also the presence of some species important for paleogeographical considerations (Bobiesipora fasciculata), and tropical implications (Steginoporella manzonii).
